Celebrate International Freelancers Day. Share Your Story And Win Prizes (Plus Connects).e_darrellj | Sep 19, 2012
Put on your party hat and dust off your dancing shoes. International Freelancers Day is Friday, September 21. If you’re like us, this grand holiday ranks right up there with New Year’s Day, Diwali, Rosh Hashanah and Oktoberfest. OK, maybe a touch below Oktoberfest, but darn close.
Whether you’re a freelancer or work for a company who uses freelancers, International Freelancers Day is your time to celebrate all things solopreneur. We may be preaching to the choir here, but freelancing really does bring wonderful opportunities to people around the world – putting food on the table, parents on time for school events and skills on track for what people love doing most.
All kidding aside, there truly is reason to celebrate this Friday and beyond.
So inspire us with your story, and win great prizes.
To celebrate International Freelancers Day we want to inspire others. You can help by sharing your story. It’s easy and fun, here’s how:
1. Tell your inspirational story about freelancing. It can be as simple as a sentence, or as state-of-the-art as a video, animation or whatever. Just be sure it speaks to our theme: How Freelancing Has Changed How I Live And Work.
2. Post your story or shoot us a link to your story on our Facebook Page, or send us a tweet @elance with hashtag #Efreelanceday. Stories must be submitted by 11:59 pm PT on September 30, 2012. As the celebration continues, we’ll be highlighting stories on the Elance Blog and Elancer newsletter.
3. Everyone who shares their story will receive 10 Connects in September and an additional 10 Connects in October!
4. Our team will view all stories and award prizes for what moves us most. Here’s what winners will receive:
